Memento Mori – “Remember your mortality”

Stemming from the medieval Latin theory and practice of reflection on mortality, it has been a ubiquitous part of human culture for centuries. From the philosophical to the artistic, the fascination, fear and appreciation of death has consistently captivated and cultivated our imagination. Many practitioners of this theory kept with them, artifacts or keepsakes which served as a reminder that the only thing certain in life, was death. Many of these items were often objects (watches, necklaces) in the shape of skulls.

The low-poly design represents a simplistic one. The bare “bones” of 3D creation and graphic art, the first steps of animation can be interpreted as the beginning of ‘virtual’ life.

Many historians believe that playing cards represented a deeper, esoteric meaning, that each suit was one of the four seasons. Each card within a suit was one of the thirteen phases of the moon. The fifty-two cards in a deck would represent the fifty-two weeks of the year and together, this would represent just one year of your life.

A constant reminder of our fleeting time on earth.

    I had just started learning casuistry after watching Chris Ramsay on youtube, i purchased a selection of cards to begin with and these were by far my favorite. the design is so simple yet makes all flourishes look so nice, would highly recommend.

    As always I received my cards very quickly after I submitted my order. I am really enjoying these cards. They handle great, and I love that they have a very colorful design with a rather dark subject matter. I will definitely be ordering more decks from pro magic

    personally I love the design of the tuck case and also of the cards themselves. I like how they handle and great for practicing springs and other cardistry moves. Love the idea behind the Memento Mori deck and its great they have been designed by Chris Ramsay. Overall these cards are a great part of a collection and great for people which already have some muscles build after doing some cardistry moves. For me a must have deck in a collection.
